Default Brook Army Medical Center

Denzel Washington and his family visited the troups at Brook Army Medical Center, in San Antonio,Texas (BAMC) the other day. This is where soldiers that have been evacuated from Germany come to be hospitalized in the States, especially burn victims. They have buildings there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher House is a hotel where soldiers' families can stay, for little or no charge, while their soldier is staying in the hospital. BAMC has quite a few of these houses on base but as you can imagine, they are almost completely filled most of the time.
While Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gave him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how much one of them would cost to build. He took his check book out and wrote a check for the full amount right there on the spot. The soldiers overseas were amazed to hear this story and want to get the word out to the American public, because it warmed their hearts to hear it.


A true American and friend to all in uniform!

That was nice of him.

We need more movie stars like him and less like Michael Jackson!

Now hat's a good hollywood. Why can't more stars be like this instead of being like the Dixie chicks or Sean Penn. Contribute something good vice talking down this country. This is someone that appreciates their freedom and knows where it comes from. Wish we had more Americans like him. Not like the ones that wanna go burn the flag that stands for freedom, NOT the government as a lot of people think. It is definately amazing how much one contribution makes and brings up espri de cor.
